In the afternoon we will enjoy a 90 minute restorative yoga class and meditation surrounded by the sound of nature. The perfect way to spend a Sunday in the glorious Oxfordshire countryside.

Brightening Cleanse & Exfoliate

Cleanse-and-exfoliate_1250x2048_2048x2048

When I first used this product I was unsure about it, it seemed messier than one of my 4 year old’s mud kitchen sessions, and that’s saying something… But, I perservered, used less water, applied onto wet palms and spent time working the precious powder into a soft mousse-like paste.  Now after using it in my Wellbeing Face Treatment and seeing the results it brings, I’m a convert…

This is an ultimate skin fixer, a superfood powder for the face containing healing clays, plant and gem extracts to smooth and polish skin to reveal its natural radiance and glow. The wonderfully delicate rose aroma encourages deep breaths and relaxation.  I love the fact that it can be used to cleanse and doubles up as an exfoliant mask that can be left on for a little longer to boost effectiveness.

This week in my treatment retreat, I have had a ‘Facial Focus’ and all of my clients have left with a glow and radiance that this potent multi-tasker creates.

To book in and experience one of my bespoke facials, please do get in touch for treatment availability.

Best, Julie x

 

Facial Focus Week

IMG_5589

Following the abundance of sunshine over last weekend’s Bank Holiday, I found I needed to really focus on deeply cleansing and exfoliating my skin after wearing all the extra layers of SPF protection.  This coupled with perspiration and daily grime from running around after my twin girls, meant it was such a treat to soak in a hot tub with de Mamiel’s skincare concoctions working their magic on me!

The sun makes us all feel so good but let’s be honest, it’s the number 1 enemy in terms of skin ageing.  It got me thinking about a skin health incentive for all of my clients, so next week I’m focusing on facials, and in support of this I’m offering a 20% discount on my Wellbeing Face Treatment, (normally £50 for 1 hour) a sublime ritual that includes deep cleansing masks, nourishing serums and balms, with foot acupressure and a de-stress scalp therapy included..

Treatment slots are available on:  Monday 14th May or Thursday 17th May
Please contact me to book.

Holistic therapies in the Cotswolds

Therapies by Julie Brown

Face 

Express Face Treatment                      £25/40 min

Working with a beautiful collection of highly effective luxurious skincare packed full of antioxidants, probiotics and skin-loving properties of plants, herbs and flowers.  A perfect mini treatment ideal for those short of time, or as an additional therapy after a longer body treatment.

The Deep Sleep Face Treatment        £65/75 min

Incorporating de Mamiel’s renowned Sleep Series, a collection of high performance formulations to restore quality sleep, this slow paced face therapy is deeply soothing and sedative.  Includes facial acupressure point and lymphatic massage, soothing eye and scalp massage and breath work to quieten the mind.

The Wellbeing Face Treatment.         £50/60 min

A bespoke face therapy that addresses individual concerns, techniques range from steaming and extraction work to specific muscle lifting and toning techniques to firm facial contours.  This facial really is wellbeing for the skin and soul, using a curated edit of the most exclusive skincare brands to ensure optimum results.

Body

Deep Connection Body Massage        £55/60 min

Many of my clients say this is their ‘must have’ monthly reset.  A deep, thorough and highly remedial body therapy that works over areas of tension, stress and fatigue, and embraces a true connection both physically and energetically.  Using breath work, passive stretching and sound healing, this treatment is given from the heart and remains the number one ‘most booked’ therapy.

Aromatherapy Massage                       £65/75 min

Tailoring a bespoke blend of essential oils specific to individual needs, this slow, soothing, soporific massage engages all of the senses in one sublime treatment.  A longer therapy time ensures total relaxation and sleep often ensues before it’s completed!  Addressing a multitude of ailments, the powerful properties of clinical grade essential oils work to aid healing from within.

Hot Stone Therapy                                £70/90 min

A most indulgent therapy, I use smooth, flat, heated basalt stones to enhance the healing effects of massage on the whole body.  Hot stone therapy is a very holistic and sensory experience as the stones are positioned along your spine, in the palms of your hands, along the legs and between the toes.  Basalt stones have a rich iron content that retains heat and are formed from lava that flowed to the Earth’s surface millions of years ago.  Over time this lava has been shaped into stones made exceptionally smooth by water flow, as they are typically sourced from river beds.

Back, Face and Scalp Therapy            £75/90 min

A beautiful integration of a back, neck and shoulder massage, express face treatment and deep scalp massage completes this holistic ritual for total wellbeing.

Reflexology                                            £45/60 min

My favourite treatment to receive, reflexology is an extremely relaxing complementary therapy that focuses on treating the entire body through acupressure of the feet.  Reflexology triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing anxiety, stopping the fight-or-flight response, and letting the body heal.  The aim of reflexology is to create homeostasis, which means that the organs in the body are all working together and functioning at their best.

Indian Head Massage                           £25/30 min

Working through the clothes, this therapy is given while you are seated and focuses on the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck and the facial pressure points.  The tradition of head massage is most commonly found in the barbershops of India, with head massage therapy having its own importance in Indian society and has been a family tradition in the continents of Asia for over many centuries.

Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage        £35/30 min

Working over the often ‘hyper tense’ musculature of the back, shoulders and neck, this shorter, intensive treatment includes deep tissue work, myofascial release and passive stretching to release stress, tension and alleviate knotted muscle pain.

Hands & Feet

Luxury Pedicure                                   £40/75 min

An indulgent treat for the feet that includes a hot bubble soak, mint and eucalyptus salt and oil scrub, pumice work for parched heels, nail filing and cuticle tidy, soothing foot mask, deep relaxing pressure point massage and application of colour or nail conditioner to finish.

Express Pedicure                                  £25/40 min

A mini foot beautifier for those short of time.  Foot soak and scrub, nail clipping, mini massage and application of colour or conditioner to finish.

Luxury Manicure                                  £35/60 min

An indulgent treat for the hands that includes a hand and nail soak, nail filing and cuticle conditioning, a nourishing skin mask, deep relaxing pressure point massage and application of Essie colour or conditioner to finish.

Express Manicure                                 £20/30 min

A mini hand treatment for those short of time.  Nail shape, cuticle work, mini massage, application of colour or nail conditioner to finish.
